At the crooked stave tasting. Pours unclear peachy amber. Not much head. Smell is full, fleshy, fruity, astrigent, mild lactic. Cinnamon is very complexlty blended itn. Extremely nice scent. Taste is sharp, sour, astrigent, tad lactic, barrel, mild cinnamon, perhaps too sour, to lactic, pulling it out of balance. But god , that scent !!! markducommun (1232) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2016
Brilliant red, pink head. Cinnamon, floral, herbs. Quite a bit of bitterness, some tang, a hint of sweetness. Lightly effervescent, quite a bit of carbonation, medium finish. Great.
